White Boy - Spastics EP

Thanks to Bruce Rhodes (again) here is White Boy's second release, a 4 track EP.

I've only had the chance to play this once, as per their first single this band is certainly "off the wall". First up is "I'm so Straight", well what can you say when you have a lines like

"See my blue suit I'm dressed up formal"
"and everybody knows I'm perfectly normal
"
"I hope you don't think this is rock n roll
you see"
"I'm a classical band
and you are an ass hole"

But in some weird way I like this (don't ask me why). "Electronic Suicide" sounds like a demented "White Stripes". Next up is "Little Idiots" sounds like a demented "Suicide". Last up is "Just an Old Fart", mmmm, it just sounds demented. Have a listen and tell ASFM what you think of White Boy and their Spastics EP.

Tracks:
1. I'm So Straight

I love the cover photos! Not as cool sounding as the first single but still cool.

Thanks for turning me on to White Boy. It's good to know that there was some interesting shit happening in D.C. during that period besides just that boring straight-edge bratty teen-agnst stuff.
